Winter Birthday at Polkadoodles

Good morning folks, its challenge time over at Polkadoodles and our theme is 'Winter Birthday'! As always my lovely teamies have got loads of inspiration for you and we've got a fabby prize for our lucky winner too so pop over to the challenge blog for all the details.

I've used a cool colour palette to create this winter birthday card. I've used papers and embellies from the fabulous Octavia Frosted Winter Collection (available as a CD here or a download here) and combined them with one of the beautiful images from the Serenity Collection (you can get the full collection here or the image 'Serenity Blossom' as a digi here) The image is coloured with Lyra pencils and I've added some silver glitter for a little frosty sparkle.

All the papers have been distressed with a craft knife and Iced Spruce distress ink and I've added lace, ribbon , a button, a tiny silver charm and some gems from my stash.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations: Anything goes/winter blues
Creative Fingers: anything goes
Little Miss Muffet: anything goes
Southern Girls: one for the girls
Wags'n'Whiskers: Anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today
